A team of Chinese scientists has developed a hypersonic generator that can produce a

powerful electric current from hot gas moving at hypersonic speeds. 

The generator could be used to power future weapons such as  

military lasers, rail guns, and microwave weapons. 

The generator works by using a shock tunnel to create a high-pressure, high-temperature plasma.  

The plasma is then passed through a magnetic field, which generates an electric current.  

The current can be used to power a variety of devices, including weapons. 

A hypersonic generator is a device that can generate electricity from the heat and 

pressure of hypersonic gas. It is a type of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) generator, 

which uses a magnetic field to convert the kinetic energy of the gas into electricity.
